I plug a 64 GB SanDisk USB drive into my computer and use Diskpart to check the
detail information of disk. I can correctly select the USB drive. However, when I
type detail disk in Diskpart, I receive an error message: there are
no volumes. Why and how to fix this error?
Why Volume Not Showing Up in Diskpart?
Whenever you do an operation with external hard drive,
you are required to make sure that the external hard drive must be recognized by
your computer. That's to say, if your external hard drive cannot be recognized,
you cannot use it as normal.
When you input detail disk in Diskpart,
you will receive the error: Diskpart list volume there are no
volumes. But, it does not mean there is no data on the
external hard drive. Maybe, there are some data but your computer cannot recognize
it. Why your computer cannot recognize the external hard drive?
To Microsoft Window users, your computer recognizes your
external hard drive by its file systems. There are four files system Windows can
distinguish, including old DOS, FAT, FAT32 and the widely-used NTFS. If you create a
volume with other file system and try to check the detail information in Diskpart,
you'll receive the error as shown in the following picture.
In addition, when you check the detailed information of
the internal hard drive, you still can receive this error message if you delete a
partition mistakenly or the partition is lost owing to changes in your operating
system, virus, spyware infection or a newly installed drive. Both cases will lead to
unallocated space on the hard drive. After your partition beceoms unallocated space,
the system may not recognize it.
